• Youth: Emily Safarik is leading our Youth Group.



Ephesians 6 Ministry

Our Sunday School uses a "rotational model" for the younger children, enabling them to get to know a large number of adults in the congregation (and vice versa!).

Confirmation Classes

The last class of our current module was covered as we walked to/from Culver’s on Mineral Point Road.   We had beautiful weather and loads of fun - especially as our leaders all tried to teach while walking backwards!’
